The audience was left gasping when, during the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury desperately tries to contact Captain Marvel before disappearing with half of the universe. However, seeing how she is yet to make her big-screen debut, not many people know who Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) actually is. Those who are not comic book fans, especially. Her solo movie is scheduled for a March 2019 debut, right before Avengers 4 drops. It’s interesting that she might be the one to save the universe from what Thanos did, mainly because she is the only one left outside of this conflict.
The live-action version of Captain Marvel will be Carol Danvers. Actually, this character has a long comic book history, beginning with Captain Mar-Vell, who will be portrayed by Jude Law in the upcoming movie. As for Danvers, she got her powers from a very sci-fi accident that resulted in her being caught in an explosion. That made her DNA merge with that of Mar-Vell, who is a member of the alien race called Kree. She became a human-Kree hybrid and got impressive powers like flight, super human strength and speed.
The story of Captain Marvel
Being part of two worlds, Carol Danvers goes through an identity crisis to figure out where her loyalties are. Finally, she takes on the iconic mantle and becomes a defender of good. Her solo movie will take place in the 1990s, which made everyone wonder where has she been all this time? Why wasn’t she with the Avengers if Nick Fury was in contact with her?
These questions will probably get an answer in her movie, but it’s still strange. Fans have actually met a member of the Kree alien race. It was Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), in the first Guardians of the Galaxy. For some time, he was working directly for Thanos. Lee Pace will return in Captain Marvel, which means that we might get a lot of answers soon.
